Professional Drummer Gives Lessons At Canton High School
Drummer Lee Fish gives lessons at Canton High School.
Lee Fish's exposure to music started at a young age, traveling on the road with his musician parents. His life experience and talent led him to become one of the most highly sought after drummers at Berklee College of Music, where he studied music performance. Lee also gives drum lessons to students at Canton High School.
"I've always loved music thanks to my parents," said Fish. "My Dad was a guitarist and my Mom played keyboards."
Fish has been giving private drum lessons at Canton High School for 18 months. He was recruited to give lessons by Sarah Collmer, fine arts director at Canton High School. Fish also plays with Canton High School's band director Brian Thomas in Thomas' band, Akashic Record.
Fish plays regularly with various musicians and groups including the Jason Palmer Quintet, the Mike Tucker Trio/Quartet/Quintet, the Evgeny Lebedev World Trio, the Primary Colors, the Mike Thomas Group and the Nick Grondin Group.
